We all know the ‘men’ typically leave present buying to the very last minute. Don’t think we don’t know boys!!

Braun Face Spa £89.99
A game changing device, it aims to epilate your facial hairs in a matter of minutes. This gadget has changed my life, in the sense that I no longer dread sitting down on a Sunday night to de fluff my face. It’s all over so quickly with this handy gadget. It also comes with two interchangeable heads, one for facial massage and one as a cleansing brush. This is a brilliant gift for anyone over 30. The gift of a hairless face. I would thank you forever.
Lovegrove Essentials Cleansing Balm & Toning Mist
As featured in the DIY hamper for women guide, the cleansing balm and skin tonic is a great skincare gift for mum. The brand was founded by mother and daughter duo Hannah Lovegrove and Hayley De Beers. The cleansing balm glides effortlessly onto the face to remove any excess dirt or makeup. It’s really luxurious feeling and massages well into the skin. simply remove with the muslin cloth supplied for brighter skin with a noticeable radiance. The Toning facial mist should be a handbag staple for everyone, with an aromatic blend of floral waters to tone, clarify and refine all skin types. Simply spritz the face after cleansing, or throughout the day for a refreshing pick me up.
W = Hb2 Power Duo Face Serum £185.00
This is a such a luxurious product and perfect gift for mum. W=Hb2 is a new beauty brand to launch in the UK. This powerful Duo Face Serum, is one of the first products to hit the UK market, with its sleek packaging design and jam packed full of interesting ingredients. The appeal for me here, with this product, was the fact that not only did it target beauty issues that we all have, but there was a secondary element, often just as important as beauty, which is health. The product comes with two pumps, Phase one releases the beauty serum aimed at targeting signs of ageing and helps to boost radiance. Then Phase two which acts as a barrier protection to skin stress as well as harmful daily environmental impacts our faces have to endure. The serum targets cell renewal and aims to improve the elasticity of the skin whilst protecting against environmental factors. I have been using this serum daily and I can vouch for a noticeable improvement to the overall appearance of my skin, it looks tighter and brighter and has calmed my stressed skin, which does not react well to the change in cold weather conditions.
Yes, this is a pricey gift, BUT it works, the results are noticeable, and when the juice is so good, the price almost does not matter. Mum will love you for this one.
Ghost is such a staple fragrance, it reminds me of my childhood when you would get a set of miniature fragrances and Ghost was always one of them. I particularly like that they are expanding the Ghost range and this Sweetheart Forever fragrance is an ideal gift for your significant other or your sister. The fragrance starts off quite sweet, which, if I am honest, is not normally my cup of tea, but the base notes are rather oriental and woody which work wonderfully on my skin. So this fragrance, although it seemed like it was not my cup of tea, has turned out to be one of my favourite scents of the year.
Candles and room fragrance are always welcomed gifts and this Christmas collection from Tisserand is ideal for home lovers. The Wild Cassis & Jasmine really packs a punch, the scent travels throughout the home and really uplifts your mood. Each item can be bought individually or clubbed together as a little gift set. Complete with a candle, room and spray and diffuser oil.
AINSEL Lipstick Shade Camel Coat £21
AINSEL are a new brand on my radar and I fell in love with their moisturising lipstick range. This one is called Camel Coat, a gorgeously golden nude colour with orange undertones. I find it to be the perfect daytime lippy that adds a pop of colour to your lips without being too overpowering. With a great variety of shades available, they make excellent gifts for your besties.
Enchanted Forest Colouring Book by Johanna Basford £9.95
Whether it’s doodling or colouring in, there is such a great selection of colouring books to choose from, and not just for kids – for adults too. And they are really great fun to get involve with. As well as promoting creativity, it can also help with relaxing the mind and being more present. The range from Johanna Basford has something for everyone. Stabilo do a wonderful range of pens, from biros to highlighters and colourful selections perfect for doodling and colouring in. And a great one for the stocking filler.
Polaroid Zip Printer £109.99
This little gadget is ideal for friends, or even your niece or nephew. It prints Polaroid style photographs straight from your mobile phone. The photo paper they use, comes with a peel off back so you can stick your images to any surface. This is great fun for sharing memories. And a really handy device to have.
HEMA Mint Knitted Throw £18
I had to mention this throw again, mainly because the price point is fantastic and the product itself is of great quality. It would make a great gift for home loving friends, maybe they have just bought a house and are doing it up, a throw is such a used staple product it makes a great gift.
I just love the style of Maui Jim sunglasses. So classic and very well made, a touch of luxury and a different brand to the norm. I loved the tortoise shell design with contrasting white trim. The lenses are slightly tinted and holographic too, perfect for checking your lippy in.
